Even with all the wacky steampunk-inspired projects we’ve seen, I never expected steampunk food. Anything else, sure, like dishes, utensils, or glassware. Brass-fitted mugs? Makes perfect sense. But a steampunk cake? Now I’ve seen it all.
That’s cake. It’s not a shiny outer layer. It’s not wrapping. It’s cake, with decorations made of fondant–every gear, every piece. No shortcuts here.
How could you ever cut it? This is art. You wouldn’t stroll up to the Mona Lisa and start hacking away with a machete. How could you put a knife into this? This cake goes too far. It’s too gorgeous.
…maybe I do sort of want to eat it.
